Keep Romance aside. It gives me lots of bad experience. Whenever I travel by that train I frighteded to keep my face outside, due to the smell and pieces of Coal. I hate this type of train. God is great. He listened my words and steam engines said good bye. Now the fast trains are very good to me. I can see the world by keeping my face outside and having good look at nature.

Dear Prasad, It seems you forgot to mention two things, no. 1 -- You have a FACE and no. 2 -- God had made a special FACE for you. Any way what you say is acceptable. But we are ready to make our faces dirty once a while to enjoy the fun of travelling by Ku Jhik Jhik Ku Jhik Jhik Ku Jhik Jhik…

Yah, there it is really exciting and the pollution created by it is also taken care of by the surrounding. You always make sure to use goggles, that will keep your eyes undisturbed. Good reply.

Yes , it is good. The sound it makes when running fast willgive good sleep . The bad part is its black smoke. The clothings will become dirty and also coal particles can fall into the eyes if kept seeing in the direction.

I believe there’s quite a few tracks set up for leisurely trips by a steam engine in England (not commercial of course!) they are nice to look at and watch, although I’ve never been in one personally.

Coimbatore to Coonoor in South India - a steam driven railway is very famous and popular even among the foreign tourists. Similarly I was told there is one in Darjeling which many Indians can recall from Rajesh Khanna's movie. The problems with this train is one would get eyes burning because the coal dust hit eyes. Secondly the II class passengers (non-Ac) open the winodws the smoke emanating from the engine carries dust particles which gets deposited on the clothes.
